Supporting people towards jobs
Employability Fund will continue into 2016/17.
At least 11,650 training places will be supported by the Employability Fund in 2016/2017, the Scottish Government has confirmed today.
The Fund is targeted at unemployed young people and adults and has already helped thousands move closer to the jobs market since its launch and. It forms part of our efforts to boost Scotland’s economic growth and provide people with training opportunities that lead to sustainable jobs.
The move follows confirmation that Scotland’s Employer Recruitment Incentive (SERI) will reopen to new applicants in April, with a sharper focus on improving the jobs prospects of those young people with the biggest barriers to employment, including those with disabilities.
Cabinet Secretary for Fair Work, Skills and Training Roseanna Cunningham said:
“The Employability Fund remains a key element of our efforts to boost employment levels in Scotland. As well as offering real training opportunities to people struggling to get a foot on the jobs ladder, improving skills and employability across Scotland will enhance our economic prospects.
“Following a period of uncertainty following the Chancellor’s spending review, which has been hugely challenging for the devolved Scottish budget, I am very pleased to announce that the Employability Fund will continue into next year and support a further 11,650 training places. When budgets are so limited it’s important that we do everything we can to squeeze the most benefit from every single penny that we spend.
New chair and deputy chair of women on boards review will champion female executives
Press release – UK Stakeholder – BIS, The Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP, The Rt Hon Nicky Morgan MP and Baroness Neville-Rolfe DBE CMG
A New chair and deputy chair of women on boards review have been appointed.
The Chair of GlaxoSmithKline, and former Chair of RBS and Sainsbury’s, Sir Philip Hampton, has been appointed to lead an independent review on increasing representation of women in the executive level of FTSE 350 companies, the government has announced.
Dame Helen Alexander, Chair of UBM, will take on the role of Deputy Chair to the review.
Sir Philip’s new review will continue on from Lord Davies’s Women on Boards Review, a voluntary business led initiative, which saw female representation on boards in the FTSE 100 rise from 12.5% to beyond the target of 25%.
The next phase of the review will focus on building the pipeline for female executives and emerging non-executive directors, to continue the work already done on increasing board representation. This was one of the key recommendations from Lord Davies’s report.
